jackson, outside the craziness, he's 9. that nice red car, he can't thrive that. the jewelry down to the belly button. i mean, child endangerment seems a little wrong. >> it does. there is a line between freedom of speech and child welfare. i don't think there will be any charges, unless there is something in his life or his parent's life. >> i like the story about m mediterranean diet. live forever in greece, but can't get a job. mixed blessing. >> the people who believe in the low-fat diet very, very low-fat diet, don't necessarily think it's all cracked up to be. >> it's not low fat at all. >> and it's hard to believe, of course, that it's been a year ago since 17-year-old trayvon martin shot to death in sanford, florida, by george zimmerman who claims he shot martin in self-defense. the unarmed teenager was racially profiled by zimmerman. martin savidge has a look back at this case on the one-year anniversary. >> reporter: it starts with a phone call. february 26, 2012. >> we've had a lot of break ins in our neighborhood recently and i'm on neighborhood watch. >> a cold and dr
, marketer, media mogul and the most person he brought was phil jackson, not a superstar player and enshrined jackson as the great -- although he had great results in chicago it exalted him as a select coach in a way they had not been before. >> you can see in pictures, hollywood celebrity, how big an influence dr. buss had. he died at the age of 80. in college hoops, berkeley, california. head coach mike montgomery will not be suspended from the pac-12 for shoving his own player during the game. he won't face suspension for shoving allen crab in the press. after initially down playing the incident, he apologized yesterday saying he made a mistake, trying to fire up his star player. crab had to be restrained after being shoved. he said they had no hard feelings and he scored 24 point in this game to help cal to a victory. opening day, nearly a month away. angels josh hamilton is settling in with his new team and quakely blew off the fans of his old one. he signed a 25 million dollars deal in the off-season and said yesterday the fans in the dallas-fort worth area, quote, there are true baseba
peterson, robert blake, phil specter, michael jackson, o.j. simpson, martha stewart. even the lindbergh baby kidnapping. why do they go to trial? it's because to get the real truth in a case like this, really get the truth, you need a courtroom. you need witnesses sworn. you need evidence, et cetera. and they tend to go that way. just looking at history, it seems to me we may well have a trial with oscar pistorius. the second part of it is we have to assume with a plea bargain if he will be offered a deal he can live with and i think based on the evidence and based on the improbabilities in his statement as the judge said, he may not get the offer he wants. >> one thing that all those cases she mentioned have in common is they were all within the united states of america. in south africa, you have a case that mark thatcher, prime minister thatcher's son, who was accused of fomenting a revolution abroad, got a very sweet plea bargain deal. the fact that it's a high profile case alone doesn't prevent a plea bargain from taking place. look, i think we don't know today the most important ev

night there was a special election. it was in a democratic seat to replace jesse jackson. a lot of people are scoffing about it. conservatives immediately because michael bloomberg went in. there was a candidate that was in a competitive race who was supported by the nra. bloomberg came in. and it changed everything overnight. >> he did. and he spent, i believe, $2 million on that race in a media market like chicago in a race at this level, $2 million is a lot of money. it's a lot of money anywhere. but coming in at the last minute and flood, saturate the airwaves with advertising in support of her and, you know, look. we talked about this a couple days before on the program. the mayor is a dangerous man in american politics right now for people who want to fight this battle. >> yeah, whatever you want to spend on trying to advocate for guns, he will triple, double, quadruple, he will spend more. >> he's got a limitless bank account, and as i said the other day, a lot of really smart political advisors who know that they want him to have an impact. and he cares about this. he's
